Girls Learn International (GLI) Chapters are founded as service learning and after-school clubs in both public and private middle and high schools. Student leaders coordinate and lead weekly or bi-weekly meetings. Faculty advisors and GLI program staff provide guidance and support to Chapters. GLI Chapters are paired with Partner Schools in countries where girls still lag behind boys in access to education.
Through communications and student exchange projects, students in GLI International Partner Schools and U.S. students learn about each other, the challenges to girls’ education, and what students can do to advocate for girls’ human rights. U.S. Chapters raise funds to support girls’ education initiatives at Partner Schools, such as covering tuition and purchasing school supplies.
